SAP has outdone itself in this respect: Last year, two board members, Bernd Leukert (who went to Deutsche Bank as a board member) and Robert Enslin (who became a top manager at Google), left the ERP group within a few weeks.
This year, three SAP Executive Board members have been hit within the space of a few weeks: Stefan Ries, Michael Kleinemeier and Jennifer Morgan. Professor Hasso Plattner can be satisfied. All four of the remaining male members of the SAP Executive Board could be his sons - the generation change has been a success.
There is still Ms. Adaire Fox-Martin on the SAP Executive Board, but she sits far away in the USA, heads up sales and will be intelligent enough not to interfere in the German male affairs of Christian Klein, Luka Mucic, Thomas Saueressig and Jürgen Müller. WiWo magazine put it in a nutshell: "People talk".
